Tachiai has just learned that Komusubi Kaisei has withdrawn from the 2018 Kyushu Basho. The big Brazilian has withdrawn from the November tournament after suffering a muscle tear in his left leg during practice. He has been prescribed a rest period of two weeks. His stable master Tomozuna Oyakata, however, has stated that Kaisei will rejoin the competition after a few days of resting his leg.
We at Tachiai hope to see Kaisei healthy again soon.
